Correction chirurgicale de la dèviation congenital du nez: ètude de 13 cas
Wry nose, a congenital deviation of the nose of horses, results in a facial appearance that is unsightly and causes difficulty with prehension of feed, dyspnea, and uneven wear of the cheek teeth. This anomaly can be corrected surgically during one anesthetic period by transecting the premaxillae/maxillae and nasal bones and stabilizing them in a more normal position and by excising the nasal septum. After correction, horses have an improved cosmetic appearance, are able to masticate normally, and have normal or near normal respiratory capacity. Post-operative complications associated with surgery include collapse of the nasal bones, infection of tissue surrounding the implants used to stabilize the nasal bones, and alar fold stenosis.
